Erin

About Me

Erin knows our trails like the back of her hand, having grown up in Muriwai riding her childhood pony, Tasha, on these very same trails. She loves sharing our stunning beach & forest treks with customers especially from the comfort of her horse, Mac’s, saddle (at nearly 17hh the view is spectacular). At the end of the day she enjoys nothing more than a gallop up the beach followed by a quick dip in the creek to cool off!
